Pan Fried Oysters

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Tebo3759

I love oysters, raw, cooked, smoked or any way I can get them. Pan fried is easy, fast and really good. I can eat this by myself easily. Maybe I should double or triple this??

Fantastic. Instead of cornmeal I used Italian bread crumbs. Mixed the garlic in with the dried ingredients. I prepared the oysters ahead of time and put on waxed paper and in the frig for an hour before cooking. I cooked them longer than 40 seconds, wanting to be sure they were fully cooked. They tasted great. Will cook again, and again.
